2021-2022 Seminar Series: Join us on June 13

Join us as we explore and play some of the delightful and popular English country dance tunes that are among over 1,000 that John Playford compiled and began publishing in 1651. Playford later published divisions on ground basses, catches, music for lira viol, cittern, and harpsichord, as well as sacred music.

We’ll discover some of the Playford country dances as well as two dances by his contemporary Matthew Locke. We will have the opportunity to play along with Lewis on recorder, Agnes Simkens on baroque violin, Jorge Torres on theorbo and baroque guitar, and Kathleen Scheide on harpsichord.
